Last winter, struggling on icy streets on my way to Carleton University, I suddenly felt fear: “Would I make it safely, would I slip or be hit by a car?” And so, petrified, tense and with pounding heart I did manage to reach Carleton’s campus and there, oh great relief, discovered that the sidewalks were fine!
As Old Ottawa South (OOS) grows and changes, traffic patterns also change. This is certainly true in the southwest section of OOS, home of the Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club (OTLBC). The Club has been a fixture of OOS since 1923 and has had to adapt with the times. Many regretted the demise of the lawn bowling component of the Club’s activities but no one can deny the success of the beach volleyball program which has replaced the lawn bowls.

Bob Nesbitt, Founder and Festival Producer, announced the full daytime and evening line-up to sponsors, volunteers, artists and media. The festival roster continues to stay true to its roots and its values—celebrating diversity in age, culture and youth—not only in performers but in volunteers as well.
Although last month I hinted that the April Business Beat would be dedicated to the exciting new development at the OTLBC restaurant, those interested will have to wait one more month to get all the details. In communicating with the tennis club and the people behind the restaurant it became clear that it makes more sense to do a write-up for May so that I can include details like decor, menus, etc. Work is already underway and the goal is for the restaurant to open in early to mid May. So stay tuned.
Instead, this month’s Business Beat features a number of different updates.
